Lamar Jackson named AFC offensive player of the month

Getty Images

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson enters the final four weeks of the season as the MVP frontrunner and his play in November is a big reason why he’s in that position.

The Ravens were undefeated last month and Jackson sparkled in all four of their wins. Jackson was 64-of-84 for 777 yards, 13 touchdowns and no interceptions through the air. He also ran 41 times for 300 yards and three touchdowns.

Jackson was named the AFC offensive player of the week after three of those performances. On Thursday, he was named the AFC offensive player of the month for November.

Jackson kicked off the final month of the season by throwing for 105 yards and a touchdown and running for 101 yards and a touchdown while the Ravens extended their winning streak to eight games by beating the 49ers. Should things keep rolling, this probably won’t be the last award Jackson wins this season.

  1. Hey, wanna hear something wild?
    ok, ok, ok, here goes…
    I gotta say this in a whisper so lean close so you can hear…
    The 49ers have a radio broadcast dude named Tim Ryan who thinks Lamar has dark skin.
    Yeah, can you believe it?
    Wild, man… like totally.

  2. A great athlete. So What. Has not won anything yet. Might choke in first round of playoffs. He runs like a running back. He might get his clock cleaned and his head taken off before the playoffs even begin. You never know what the post season brings.
    Baltimore has not clinched number one seed yet. Still work to do in December.

    You should also never count out the defending champions and their legendary quarterback and coach. The Patriots are a Dynasty. All Lamar had done is pile up yards. NO ring yet. If Ravens do not win Super Bowl the season means nothing.

  3. Jackson did not have his usual amazing game against the 49ers, but he showed that he can put together a long time-consuming drive to give Tucker an opportunity, and he did it in some really nasty weather. That is the kind of thing he might need in January.

    This Steelers fan hopes Jackson sits out the final game of the year, especially if the Steelers need that game. I think it would be fun to face Jackson and the Ravens at some point in the playoffs. Of course, beating Jackson and the Ravens in the playoffs would be quite a challenge.

    That kid is fun to watch.

  4. Love the Pats fans hoping he gets hurt. What a sad, scared bunch of loser trolls. Wow. We would never wish harm on your precious Tommy Boy. Chill out with the hate and enjoy watching the kid play and grow.

    You can understand why Pats fans would be so sensitive to the possibility of a QB injury, for as many years as they’ve been watching Brady cry and throw up his hands in disgust if he is so much as touched by a defender. Harumph- an outrage, I tell you, that any other QB would break this gentleman’s code of Playing Football.

  7. Josh,you just triggered all the patsie fanboys. They will be outraged that Tammy wasn’t given the award. We’ll have to give Tammy a participation certificate instead. Don’t want him crying to his receivers on the sidelines again

  8. It is truly bizarre how bitter some of you seem over his success. All players risk injury when they step on the field, the difference here is that literally no other player in the league impacts teambsiccess like Lamar does, therefore an injury to him would be more impactful than any other player.

    The obvious is obvious.

    How is Joe Flacco doing this season?

    Can’t wait to see him try and play the way he plays in the playoffs. Some LB or DB that would never risk a penalty or fine the the regular season is going to ‘play through the whistle’ and knock him onto CTE land. So I guess we’ll finally get to see what RG3 has to offer and he’s been so reliable over the years… It’s why gimmick offenses only work in the regular season.

    It will be the Pats tearing through the AFC again this year.

    Lamar should be a receiver. Lamar comes in and currently has 25 passing tds against 5 ints and a 109.6 rating.

    Oh yea? He’s not going to be able to run like that against NFL defenses. Lamar comes in and runs circles around defenses. Leading team with
    977 rushing yards 9th in the entire NFL and first in yards per attempt at 7.

    Now that he’s got the team not only playing well but beating multiple high quality teams that are legit contenders for winning the superbowl it’s now well let’s see him do it in the playoffs. Where some unscrupulous player will intentionally injure him for running all over them. (Not that you have any proof or anything to back up that claim)

    I guess I only have one question. Don’t you get tired moving that heavy goalpost back every few weeks?

  13. And Lamar is doing all this while the Ravens have the toughest strength of schedule in the entire league this season. The Ravens will be battle tested come the playoffs and if they can Clinch home field throughout then good luck beating them.

    Patriots continue to own (not even rent!) space in your head. No Patriots fan has rooted for Jackson to get hurt. Many have pointed out that a running quarterback is more susceptible to injury, though that is a statistically disputable claim. I’m a huge Patriots fan and I hope Jackson does NOT get hurt. EVER. Why? Because he’s freaking awesome to watch. I want my team to come up with a way to stop him like they have with other can’t-miss quarterbacks in the past.

    The obvious is obvious.
    ===========================

    Just a personal opinion here…but I haven’t seen VERY few people actually angry over Lamar’s success (not counting obvious trolls). Most people seem to be giving him credit for the incredible player he is and outstanding season he is having. Even as a Hawks fan I have to admit that while a few weeks ago I thought people were handing him the MVP over Russell Wilson too hastily…LJ has absolutely pulled away and is the deserving favorite.

    The narrative that people hate Lamar for no reason, hope he fails for no reason, etc. seems to honestly be more media driven than anything. There is literally no reason to dislike the guy (unless your team is going up against him).

    And again…just my .02, but the thing I find more hilarious than anything else lies with Ravens fans themselves. You couldn’t read just about ANY article last year about Jackson without plenty of Ravens fans lamenting that Flacco was benched in favor of him, stating he isn’t a QB, etc…then fast forward to this year and anyone with any Ravens affiliation is acting like they knew it all along, are his biggest supporter, etc. Always funny how that works…

  16. If Lamar is a running back playing QB, then why worry about him getting hurt? Nobody worries a other RBs getting hurt, who carry the ball twice as much.

  17. 64/84 Completions, 76CMP%, 777PassYds, 13TDs, 0Ints, 300RushYds, 3TDs. And the kid sat out the 4th Qtr in 3 of those games! Just Wow. If he continues to improve and you’re a fan of an AFC team other than the Ravens, I’d consider switching to the NFC so you at least wouldn’t have to see him but once every few years or the Super Bowl LOL. This might be the first time a player has literally made every analyst and fan, including us Ravens fans, completely wrong in their analysis of him prior to a season.

  18. What a fun team to watch – although 1:00pm games v San Francisco and this Sunday in Buffalo should get some marketing/scheduling people fired. I hope that there are smart people in New York, Chicago, here in Washington, anywhere with talented young quarterbacks, watching how the Ravens front office and coaching staff have tailored there team and schemes to Lamar Jackson’s skills and strengths.

  19. He’s the MVP in my opinion. Reason, he took over for Flacco & turned a 7-9 team into a playoff team & this year turned them into 10-2. What would their record be with Flacco? Probably 5-7. He gives them 5 more wins than they would have otherwise been.

  20. The Ravens high school offense didn’t look all that unstoppable in the second half against the 49ers after 49ers made adjustments. Now imagine teams that have already faced the Ravens in the regular season in the playoffs. It will not look pretty. Unless Harbaugh has some wrinkles to this high school offense that he is saving for the playoffs. We’ll see.

  21. “Now imagine teams that have already faced the Ravens in the regular season in the playoffs. It will not look pretty”.

    Patsie fans bent out of shape because Jackson is getting all the accolades and the end being near for Brady.

  22. Love how Pats and Bills fans spent the offseason trashing this kid and are trying to play nice with the Ravens fanbase now. Hilarious.

    Same fan bases that start screeching and call for Sam Darnold to be cut when he has a bad game as a 22 year old on one of the worst teams in the NFL.

    Karma is going to be delicious in 2020 if the Jets can build a wall around Darnold too.

  23. as an eagles fan I am pissed! We traded that draft pick, # 32 first round (winning prior years SB), to the ravens who drafted Lamar!
    Should’a drafted Lamar Howie!!

  24. @discountdoublecheck

    Nah, Bills fans especially drove the narrative and Pat fans joined in because they don’t like John Harbaugh. Lamar was doing the same exact thing Allen was doing last season but was actually way more productive in fewer games yet they discredited Lamar and overhyped Allen like they are doing now after he beat an overrated Cowboys team. Jets/Ravens fans have had a connection since 2009 due to our personnel (Rex, Bart Scott, Jim Leonhard) and now Joe Douglas as the GM of the Jets. Don’t try to give credit to our QB’s when they get things right and all the takes on here about Darnold and Lamar spoil like milk.

  25. If Jackson doesn’t wind up as the MVP of the league,then I don’t know what to think. Russell Wilson is pretty amazing as well,but Jackson has moves that most of us have never seen before. He makes you WANT to watch,even if your own team is a bitter rival. It’s much better to appreciate a guy like this than to hate or be jealous. Skills like his don’t come around often. I don’t like John Harbaugh or the Ravens,but I sure do like their QB.

    =========================

    Agree to disagree my man. I saw what I saw last season, but I also don’t care enough to keep up with rivalries between the Jets and Ravens fans because of Jim Leonhard. I’ll take your word for that part of things.

  27. It’s funny how everyone is falling in love with the new wildcat gimmick rb pretending to be a qb and already have his gold jacket and bust in the hall of fame. We see these one year wonder qbs come and go alot. He’s the next krapernick 2.0, Vick 2.0, tebow 2.0. All were great runners with terrible passing, terrible pocket presense, terrible accuracy and timing, cant read defenses. I don’t like the Patriots, brady is a washed up bum, but they will still shutdown that wildcat rb pretending to be a qb. Or the chiefs will blow them out. Tbe media and all these fanboys jumping on the lamar krapernick bandwagon crack me up. We all seen this movie many times before and seen how it ends. Enjoy your gimmick wildcat rb /qb while it lasts. Krapernick lasted 2 years before the nfl figured him out and shut him down, and turned him into a bottom tier qb. Jackson is no different, just a little faster feet with the same awful passing skills. Next year will be funny. All I’m gonna say is I told you so when he falls apart and looks like krapernick in his final two years. Lol 😀

  28. “It’s funny how everyone is falling in love with the new wildcat gimmick rb pretending to be a qb”

    It’s funny how everyone is falling in love with the new wildcat gimmick rb pretending to be a qb who has the 4th highest passer rating, 2nd most pass TDs, 9th in total rushing yards, and leads the offense which is in the top 5 in every statistical category.

    There I fixed it for ya
